by honoring the victims of the sandy hook elementary school tragedy. this issue of the magazine is devoted to the lives they lived. to a parent, the childhood of a 6 or 7-year-old is rich beyond measure. but the incomprehensible horror and grief is for the milestones unshared. newtown is for the lives unlived and for those who lost loved ones, the sorrow is beyond capacity to know or comprehend. it will take a lifetime to work out. these issues were always popular among readers and difficult to assemble in the choice of who you select. >> it's hard to say and you do what they do. you start with lists and lists. you start months and months ago and ironically you make sure it's not a list of all the people that passed away and all the lives that were lived and unlived. we try to go over a list of people who passed away between our lead time and production time and try to match those lives to the writers and artists that work with the magazine and find ways to celebrate these lives. this issue is supposed to be a celebration of life. it's not supposed to be an acknowledgement of death. it's n

in front of the bullets. what teacher at sandy hook or columbine wouldn't have even with a little bit of training, wouldn't have had a firearm rather than put themselves in front of the bullet. just the extra option. >> you've been offering gun training for a long time, i understand. are you surprised at all by the conflict in newtown? >> i was surprised, but it's completely understanda believe because people realize how vulnerable they are and what we need to be doing is projecting that position of security on our schools rather than projecting the vulnerability and what we have in the gun-free school zones right now is nothing, but an advertisement to the crazies out there that they're not going have any return fire. >> but clark, is it a good idea to have more guns in and around school? is it a good idea to do away with gun-free school zones. >> there are bad people with guns and good people with guns. who do you call when the shooter comes you call the good people with the guns and unfortunately they show up too late and our first response are the teachers and let's not disarm the

of the sadness in newtown and sandy hook is they did everything they could. nobody opened the door for the guy. they did everything in their power and still this happened. in the immediate aftermath on friday of this horror, everyone talked about gun control pretty quickly, and people said, you know, we ought to do something, but nothing is going to change. the answer was because of the political power of the nra. i guess i would ask you, joe, as someone who has held office, what are the political costs of crossing the nra? how serious is it? mayor bloomberg has called that a complete myth. what's the problem? >> i can tell you in 1994 i ran, and nobody knew who i was. the nra worked overtime to defeat me because they didn't know me. they knew a state legislator they wanted in, and they worked overtime and spread lies about me. things that were factually false and went after me aggressively and i got 62% of the vote. i think they're very powerful. who knows maybe 3, 4, 5% of the 38% of the vote my opponent got maybe it was people that believed the stuff that the nra sent out. it all depends. y
